Forever already happened

Post by koan »

Two lives in a heartbeat

Entwining, merging, striving

Fingers pulsing as they

Pry and twist and cling

To each other.

Two minds in a vortex

Reaching, wanting, longing

Thoughts racing as they

Pry and twist and cling

To each other.

Two lives out of billions

Searching, hoping, trying

Souls soaring and plummeting

As they succeed and fail and look

To each other.

A game not meant to be played

An action not meant to be stayed

A fever that eats the heart

And rips the spirit apart

Then I am left here wondering

If I call a name in the dark

Will it be yours and

Will you answer?

I look forward to reading some of your poems, tmbsgirl.

Thank you for the compliment. I haven't been able to write a good poem for two weeks and I thought this was a keeper.

Hello Coan, I love poetry so much and must say how excited I am to read your beautiful piece. You're really a gifted poet and I admire your abilities. Here is one of my poems.

SCARS OF LIFE

Negations

In countless myraids

Like the sea of clustered stars

Densely packed in milky way

Solutions

Fine as golden braids

Yet unreachable as spars

Of ships sailing far away

Conceptions

Out on vainful raids

To wipe clean the ugly scars

Etched on life by man today

polycarp, that is an astounding poem. Can you please post it in your own thread so more members can see it? It deserves it's own thread anyway.

Thanks Coan, I'll copy the poem and post it as a new thread. Cheers
